this June morning


I followed Lena outside with my cup of coffee this morning, answering her suggestion of, “Go ou’side, Mama.  See bugs.  Come, Mama.”  I’m so glad I listened to her.  What a beautiful Virginia morning!  We enjoyed all of it outside: exploring my mom’s gorgeous garden, playing around in the wagon, and having a tea party on the porch.

My “Aunt” Leslie is not pictured in these photos, but she was with us this morning and later took heaps of photos of Gil.  I’m so excited to share another “Gil photoshoot” on the blog on Monday.  I really think he gets cuter every day… but I’m his mama, after all!

How’s the weather where you live?  I’m glad not to be in Sicily right now; Elliott said he was sweating while sitting still in our house last night.  It’s 100 degrees there and feels hotter, but here in Virginia we still have some beautiful “spring” days left… even though this is the first day of summer!  Do you plan to be outside this weekend?


P.S. Today is the LAST DAY to enter the bike seat and helmet giveaway!  Winner will be announced on Monday!

    It gave me a big ol’ smile that Lena wanted to go see bugs this morning. So happy I finally got to meet her!

      I’m still so happy inside to think of your two faces finding me at the 2003 reunion dinner! Love you, Maggie.

    Oh what a lovely morning! Your children are darling and your breakfast…well, wish I’d have been invited!

    We have been having some rainy days up here in Vancouver, BC. But, we’re rather used to it! We’re hoping for a dry spell around July 1, our national day!

      We had a thunderstorm today and are supposed to have one each day this week! The thing about VA — and, I assume, BC — is that it really doesn’t dry out between rain spells in some parts around here. Oh well… I do love a good rain/thunderstorm!

    It looks like you’re having a great time with your family in Virginia! Your kiddos are adorable, and Gil is getting so big!

    It’s been just beautiful here in PA too…but I think the summer weather is supposed to roll in this weekend. Not sure I’m ready for that!!

      “Summer weather” = HOT, and that is why I am glad I’m avoiding some of the Sicilian summer!

    Lovely pictures of the children! Here it is now winter, but the weather is not too bad ;-)
